While they’re a bit on the labour-intensive side, we didn’t want to omit mashed potatoes from the holiday table. Our solution: an anti-stress version that doesn’t require an insanely smooth, puréed texture. It’s even okay if it has lumps! Prepare this dish in advance and, bonus, reheat in the oven that was used to roast the turkey, while the bird rests on the counter before serving.
